Also known as Asparagus beans or Chinese long beans. These Oriental Yardlong bean seeds are best if sown directly in the garden soil after the soil has reached 60F. As the name implies the pods grow long can achieve a length of 36″ but are best when harvested about 18″ long when still tender. The flavor is that of a typical green bean with a hint of asparagus. They are excellent eaten fresh but can also be cut into lengths and canned. We long to chop them up and add them to stir fry. When planting Oriental Yardlong bean seeds be sure and provide a trellis. Plants will quickly climb and can easily reach a height of 8′ or more. Harvesting the pods encourages more pod production and you’ll be rewarded with flavorful long beans all summer long.
